Forms and Function: 4 Design-Driven Workplaces

“When diverse elements collide, ordinary becomes unique.”

Firm: AD Architecture


Location: Shantou, China

Standout: The combination of concrete, sculpturesque seating, and spare but strong color feels more art gallery than branding consultancy headquarters.

“We preserved the historic site’s character and craftsmanship.”

Firm: Progres Atelier

Project: Aon

Location: Prague

Standout: Contemporary interventions in the form of a resin cocoon chandelier and a mezzanine of powder-coated metal enabled the 1896 neo-baroque shell housing the insurance company to stay intact.

“Our language of pattern and texture is organic and vivid.”

Firm: Beza Projekt

Project: Nest

Location: Warsaw

Standout: Residentially scaled custom furniture, plush upholstery and carpet, and decorative wallpaper by Ikakok yield an intentional homey vibe at the five-level co-working space, drenched in its corporate color.

Distillery by KOGAA Studio. Photography by BoysPlayNice.

“The potential of post-industrial adaptation excites us.”

Firm: KOGAA Studio

Project: Distillery

Location: Brno, Czech Republic.

Standout: The 19th-century former distillery’s bones trans­lated well into a co-working space: partially removing its central beam system to create a double-height presentation hall and installing a tiny bar in an existing elevator shaft.
